AmigaAmiga Power (Sep, 1991)
Terrible presentation, but lots of fun and not a little addictive. There's hours of frenzied joystick waggling here, but even with the game's good points, it's hard to justify the asking price.
AmigaAmiga Power (Oct, 1991)
Terrible presentation, and a highly questionable price. [...] If only it had been a tenner cheaper.
Atari STST Format (Nov, 1991)
The control method is rather novel, but it sometimes causes far too much confusion, especially on the throwing events, to enable you to actually play the game. Hunting around the bargain bins of your local ST software store will no doubt turn up an old sports sim at a low price, in which case you'd be well advised to plump for one of those rather than buying International Championship Athletics.
AmigaPlay Time (Sep, 1991)
Die dreiseitige, deutschsprachige Bedienungsanleitung erleichtert den Einstieg in das sportliche Geschehen. Jedoch nur derjenige, welcher sich nicht an der etwas einfachen Grafik stört, wird bei diesem Spiel nach einiger Übung seinen Spaß haben.
AmigaAmiga Joker (Sep, 1991)
Die Grafik ist ganz nett animiert und recht bunt, dafür ruckelt das Scrolling wirklich höllisch. Sound gibt’s (außer der Titelmusik und etwas Ächzen & Keuchen) fast gar nicht, der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist viel zu niedrig, und ein Zwei-Spieler-Modus fehlt auch. Bei dieser Olympiade ist Dabeisein nicht alles – genaugenommen ist's noch nicht mal die Hälfte...
Well, the athletics season is over for another year, but if you crave for a spot of track and field on computer, why not take a look at International Championship Athletics, with its cornucopia of events including sprints, high and long jumps, javelin and hammer throwing, to name but a few? I'll tell you why. Because it's a pile of old - no. I can't use that word in these pages. This is one BAD piece of software, with some of the most embarrassing graphics ever witnessed. The commentator looks like a hideously deformed Trigger from Only Fools and Horses, the crowd look like undead Kevin Keegan clones and as for everything else? Don't ask. And certainly don't buy.
